Deer ~ Husbands ~ Tap Rock ~ Sami's Art ~ Cooking Prime Rib


 
Good 41º clear sunny morning. Temps might hit 80ºs!
Only warmed to 67º yesterday. Stayed cloudy all day.

When I went out about 3:15 the doe and her fawn were laying in the tall grass...



 
Yesterday morning I went to Tap Rock for Sunday Brunch.

Brian, Jen, Sami, and Tucker walked in just after me. Then Jennifer and Mike.
View outside from our inside table.. gloomy day.
Sami wanted to sit with me... biscuit, sausage, bacon, fresh fruit, and a waffle with whipped cream and chocolate chips!
Brian and Jen...
Tucker scoping out the buffet.....
My mimosa.....

Jennifer and Mike with theirs.....

My breakfast... sausage, bacon, scrambled eggs, biscuit & gravy, eggs Bennie, and cheese blintz...  OINK OINK OINK!
Sami brought her paper and crayons. She drew a frog for Jennifer, a lady bug for Mike, and a frog for me.... I framed it when I got home!

Stopped at the store to get some cauliflower to make that recipe from Saturday, but was too full to even think of cooking! Told the produce guys about the 'all you can eat Sunday buffet' and they said they'd be going next week, especially when I told them about the roast beef and ham and biscuits and gravy!

Ohhhhhh.... one of my most favorites! Especially at Lawry's Prime Rib, Beverly Hills! Prime rib, Yorkshire pudding, creamed spinach, mashed potatoes, creamy horseradish sauce. To dieeeeeee for....

Here is my foolproof way to cook prime rib, perfect every time:

Make a rub of salt and pepper and garlic and/or onion powder and or any other type of herb you like and you can even mix it with butter or olive oil .... rub onto roast. Put in roasting pan, turn oven to 550º. When oven is ready put in the roast and cook it 5 minutes for every pound for rare, 6 minutes per pound for medium. Then turn off the oven and DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN DOOR FOR 2 HOURS! Done to perfection.

Here is a formula: For me it was 3.75 lbs x 5 min. = 18.75 minutes or 19 minutes.
